Abstract:

Summary The Software Maintenance Group at Hill Air Force Base has created a Quality Model applicable formost software development projects. Quality is modeled by predicting defect injection and removal using historical data. Variation is taken into account by using a MonteCarlo Simulation to adjust estimates, defect injection rates and defect detection ratios. Interim results can be used to guide the project toward a final quality goal. Actual data replaces projected in the model as the project progresses.
